The beginning or end?

I took this on my way into work. A wonderful sunset to the start of a work day. I am trying to remember to take my camera with me where ever I go as I have seen some rather spectacular skies as of late. And somethings that I wish I had the opportunity to get pictures of as well.

What do these pens have in common with the one below?

They are from my husband's place of work. He seems to collect them! I thought we had this little issue fixed when he left CarQuest. But seems now that he's going to be doing additional things besides just repairs at the new site, he's also going to be helping in the office. Which means pens get tucked into his shirt pocket, come home and stay to LIVE! The only problem I have with this is the picture below -- I only have a limited amount of room for so many of these little additions that move in and don't bother to pay rent! (Well, okay they help to write out the rent reciept.) I have in the past collected all the errant CQ pens and taken them back to the store. I had a half gallon baggie full. Yes, I am serious. Darn things multiplied like rabbits!

I love Recipezaar. You can find recipes for just about anything you can think of there. Not everything is of course there, but there are many many recipes to choose from. Today I made Country White Bread. We, Logan and I, polished off one whole loaf all to ourselves. Perhaps there should be a warning on the site!! This could be dangerous to the waist line! This is some really good bread. Best I have made at home as of yet. The only other thing I am going to start doing is buying distilled water to bake with. The water that comes from the wells and underground reserviors is heavy with calcium and other minerals that inhibit the yeast and other leavening ingredients from working like they should.

gotta love Bro and his pen collection. Just think - you are never lacking for something to write with.

That's a really good picture. I have a wife who is afflicted with the same pen problem. My main issue is that because there's so many of them, by the time you get around to using them, the ink is dry.
